GFValidate.exe application error
We have a Windows small business server 2008 with SEP 12.01 that has been running for the past 2 1/2 years without problem.
Recently we have started receiving error messages in the event log:
Application Error: EVENT ID 1000
Faulting application GFValidate.exe, version 12.0.1001.68, time stamp 0x4af8be4c, faulting module MSVCR80.dll, version 8.0.50727.6195, time stamp 0x4dcddbf3, exception code 0x40000015, fault offset 0x000046b4, process id 0x3560, application start time 0x01ce35f3bc5b8c76.
This started in the new year with a few error messages a month in January and February with none in March. Since the 6th April they seem to be occuring 3 / 4 times daily.
A search of the internet seems to associate this with SEP 12 and the management of its clients.
i.e. that the clients have become unmanaged.
I have checked the SEP console and all clients are associated correctly and have been updating with the latest definitions on a daily basis.
The clients indicate that they are contacting successfully with no problems detected and are reporting todays date as the last connection time.
Does anyone have any ideas of where these errors originate?
